This past week our Resident DEIA Committee hosted it’s 4th event this year, with a viewing of the documentary, The Color of Medicine. The film covers the rise of Homer G Philips Hospital, a premier over 700 bed hospital in St. Louis, that from 1937 to 1979 cared for the Black community and trained the largest number of Black physicians and nurses. It was tragically closed in 1979 by the city. We continue to educate ourselves on the hidden, segregated, racist history of our city while honoring and recognizing the incredible wealth of the Black community in STL.
There was rich discussion and delicious food complements of Mayo Ketchup.
